17 Ye (hall not respect persons in j judgment, but you (hall hear the small as well as the great; you shall not be afraid of the face of man, for the judgment a Gods: and the cause that is too hard for" you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.

18 And I commanded you at rhat time all the things which ye should do.

19 % And when we departed from Horeb, we went through all that great and terrible wilderness, which you saw by the way of the mountain of the Amorires, as the Lord our God commanded us; and we came to Kadcshbarnca.

20 And I saiJ unto you, Ye are come unto die mountain of the Amorites, which the Lord our God doth give unto us.

21 Behold, the Lord thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto dice j fear not, neither be discouraged.

21 % And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will send men before us, and they shall search us 3ttt the land, and bring us wotd again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall come.

25 And the laying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you, one of a tribe.

24. And they turned and went up into die mountain, and came unto die valley of Eshcol, and searched it out.

25 And they took of die fruit of the land in theit hands, and brought it down unto us, and brought us word again, and said, It Ui good land, which rhe Lord our God doth give us.

16 Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but rebelled against the commandment of the Lord your God.

27 And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the Lord" hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into tl e hand of '.lie Amorites, to destroy us. 2$ Wbichcc flail we go up? our

brethren have diseouraped our heart, saying, The pecple is greater and tallet than we, the cities are great and walled up to heaven, and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there.

1 j Then I said unto you, Dread not,' neither be afraid of them.

30 The Lord ymir God which goeriS before you, he shall fight sot you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes:

31 And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the Lord thy God bare thee as a man dodi bear his son, in all the way that ye went, Until ye came into this place.

33 Who went in the way before you to search you out a place to pitch your tents in, in fire by night to shew you by what way ye should go, and in x cloud by day.

34 And die Lord heard the voice of your words, and was wroth, and sware, saying,

3<? Save Caleb the son of JephunnehV he fluII fee it, and to him will I give the land mat he hadi troden upon, and to his children, because be hath wholly followed the Lord.

37 Also the Loud was angry with me for your fakes, saying, Thou also shalt not go in thither.

38 But Joshua the son os Nun, which standedi before thee, he shall go in thither. Encourage him: sot heshall cause Israel to inherit it.

39 Moreover, your little ones, which ye (aid should be a ptey, and your children which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in diidier, and onto them will I give it, and diey shall possess it.

40 But at for you, turn ye, and take yout journey into the wilderness, by the way of the Red sea.

41 Then ye answered and said unto mei We have sinned against the Lord, we wil I go up and fight, according to all that the Lord out God commanded ut. And when ye had gilded- on every man his weapons of war, ye were ready to go up into the hill.

31 And the Loud said unto me, Behold, I have begun to give Sihon and his land before thee: begin to possess, that thou mayst inherit his land.

32 Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Jahai.

33 And the Lord our God delivered him before us, and we smote him, and his sons, and all his people.

34 And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones of every city, we left none to remain:
